Women who observe the fast on this day offer prayers to Lord Shiva, Goddesses Parvati and wish for a wealthy, healthy and long life of their husbands. During the day long fast, women open the Karwa Chauth fast only after the moonrise and completing the traditional ritual by offering prayers to the moon. 

Karwa Chauth fast is actually called ‘nirjala vrat’ which is observed from sunrise to moonrise. Women keep a day long fast impatiently wait for the red coloured moon to rise after which a process is followed and the fast is broken. In this day long fast — without food and water — married women pray for their husbands happy life and open their fast after consuming water which is offered by their husbands.

Also known as Karak Chaturthi (करक चतुर्थी). Married women offer water to the moon as part of their prayer, known as Argha (अर्घ) by holding an Atta Chani in another hand. The water is offered by keeping the Atta Chani between the moon and water container. Karwa Chauth is very significant during Puja and it is also given as ‘Dan’ (charity) to the Brahmin woman.
